There is a race between these two veterans on who plays for the most number of clubs. Eto’o was tied at 14 with Achille Emana but Emana has just signed for one more club to edge former Cameroon teammate Samuel Eto’o, making it his 15 club in total.
Achille Emana Edzimbi, the man referred to as Cameroon’s ‘last number 10’ has secured a move to Spanish third-tier side Sebastien De Los Reyes, from Club Football Badalona.
The 37-year-old has surely gone past his peak but as the popular adage goes; “old wine only gets better with age”, the former indomitable Lion and 2008 AFCON finalist has a lot to offer in terms of experience and helping the youths grow on and off the pitch.
The journey man who has roamed in 14 clubs before finalising his deal to Sanse Sebastian FC would not have a whole lot to change given his former side CF Badalona played also in the “Segunda B” though in a different zone.

Explanation of the Spanish third-tier:
Spanish third-tier is referred to as the Segunda B. It is divided in 4 groups of 20 teams each. It comes below the firs-tier (LA liga), and the second-tier (Segunda division) but it is above the Tercera division which is the fourth division. The Segunda B includes most reserve teams of LA liga like: Celta B and Villarreal B. It was founded in 1977.
Achille Emana is a versatile player who can play in all other positions from the midfield to the center-forward role but thrives as a second striker behind the center-forward.
In that typical number 10 position the veteran can still do damage and has a good shot with his right foot to dissolve any organized defense.
